Put Crime Dog McGriff in the Hall of Fame! But Freddy McGriff was a feared power hitter. As a kid you love that. I group him in with guys like Darryl Strawberry and Barry Larkin as first favorite players who shepherded me through my youth. He just looked cool in the batters box. I can still see his stance in my head. He also moved like a statue on the base paths. If first base wasn’t an option he would have not had a position to hide in (although he was a decent defensive first basemen)” [7th Inning Stache]
